After receiving a tip authorities arrested Shawntell Eppinett, 31, Wednesday at the Bossier Inn and Suites in the 700 block of Diamond Jacks Blvd.

Investigators determined that Eppinett was the person seen on surveillance video taking a woman’s purse at the Wal-mart on Airline Dr. last month.
She is also accused of using the victim’s credit card to make unauthorized purchases.

Eppinett was booked into the Bossier City Jail and charged with theft and unauthorized use of an access card as theft.

Police say Eppinett’s boyfriend, Joseph Pomares, 42, acted as an accomplice and was also arrested and booked on the same charges.
